Novant Health hosts ‘Ladies Night Out’ today

Support Rowan County United Way and receive free health screenings

SALISBURY — Novant Health is providing a fun night of shopping and free health screenings in support of Rowan County United Way tonight during its fourth Ladies Night Out.

The event is being held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the West End Plaza Event Center, located at 1935 Jake Alexander Blvd. Attendees are encouraged to make a $10 donation to the United Way in place of admission to the event.

Ladies’ Night Out aims to promote women’s health by providing a relaxing, comfortable environment for women to receive their annual health screenings. Screenings offered include A1C, body mass index or BMI, bone density, balance testing and more.

Guests will have the opportunity to enter drawings for door prizes from local vendors and indulge in chair massages and mini-manicures. Vendors will be selling items such as jewelry, clothing and personalized items, just in time for Mother’s Day.

Beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

“This is a great opportunity for women in the community to come together and receive free screenings,” said Jessica Ijames, manager of social responsibility for Novant Health Rowan Medical Center. “Women will be able to receive free health screenings, eat, shop, socialize and enter to win prizes all while benefiting the United Way.”

Participating community vendors include AnnaCraig Boutique, Carolina Women’s Health Associates, Cauble Creek Vineyard, Chicka-Jen’s Sign and Furniture Co., Curiosities Gifts, LuLaRoe, Foot’s Delight Neuro Reflexology, Greystone Salon and Spa, Pampered Chef, Premier Designs, Salisbury Eyecare and Eyewear, Simply Sassy Boutique, Winsome Hanger, 3 Jem’s Boutique and more. All vendors will have items available for sale, and Virtual Sounds will provide entertainment and a photobooth.
